When We Were Young (A Poem)

When We Were Young

When love was young
we used to make our crowns
out of clover blossoms
and get drunk
from the honeysuckle vine.
Sometimes I don’t
remember that anymore.
But, just now –
there’s a stew to make
and gingerbread cake
in the oven
and the sun will be setting
sooner than later
these days.
